While it feels like your favorite internet celebrities share their entire lives online with their fan base, there needs to be a line drawn as to what's public and what's private. And for some reason, people don't understand that leaking nude photos crosses a line that even influencers have.
Troy Zarba's followers were quick to criticize his "package."
In a display of humanity arguably worse than that of whoever leaked Troy's private photos, some of Troy's own fans took the photos as an opportunity to criticize him over the size of his "package."
In his TikToks, Troy makes frequent jokes insinuating that he's well-endowed, but once the photos were released, some were quick to bash them, publicly shaming him for his size. It's unclear whether the joke was something he started or if it was started by his fans.

The body shamers jumped at the opportunity to try to tear the TikToker down, but others quickly stepped in to defend him — and shame those who thought it was OK to critique his private photos.
body shaming is disgusting. when the other boys were leaked, they were praised because of their size but as soon as Troy Zarbruh was leaked, everyone’s coming at him crazy because it’s not to your liking, like what? double standards at its finest because if this was a female?— adasa🕷 (@bugletttt) April 21, 2020
it would be a completely different story. boys/men are human too and they have feelings and insecurities, sweetie. he’s also someone who’s in the spotlight, he’s already being criticized constantly so this is just going to haunt and follow him.— adasa🕷 (@bugletttt) April 21, 2020
"Body shaming is disgusting. when the other boys were leaked, they were praised because of their size but as soon as Troy Zarbruh was leaked, everyone’s coming at him crazy because it’s not to your liking, like what?" one user tweeted in defense of Troy. "Double standards at its finest because if this was a female? it would be a completely different story. boys/men are human too and they have feelings and insecurities, sweetie."
Most were quick to criticize those who wanted his nudes to leak.
Troy isn't the first to have his nudes leaked on the internet. Charli D'Amelio had her private photos shared, as did Troy Lopez. In fact, it's so common some people have the audacity to tweet "Twitter, let ___ be next," naming whose nudes they want to leak next.
This common practice has also garnered intense backlash from people who understand being an internet celebrity doesn't mean private photos are fair game.
i just wanna say i havent seen it, i dont wanna see it. i never saw any of the other ones, you guys are all ridiculous and toxic with the whole ‘twitter let ___ be next’, Troy if you see this bro im so sorry and i just hope ur doing okay :\ #zarbruh— stop leaking peoples nudes (@bhiridescence) April 21, 2020
"he sent nudes because he wanted it to be leaked" his thought is rubbish, he sent nudes, for VARIOUS reasons, one of these is because he trusts the person, how he leaked all the nudes you have seen, I don't know. But I'm sure the nudes owner didn't want it to be leaked— lua🌙 (@withlovemendes) April 21, 2020
Troy is taking a break from social media to handle the leak.
Most of Troy's social media has been quiet since his private photos were leaked, and his Twitter account has currently been set to private. Allegedly, the only place he has responded to the photos is on his spam TikTok account, where he posted a video recently. In the comments of the video, he addressed his absence from his main account.
"I'm not posting on my main acc for a lil cuz I don't want my parents to see," he commented. "I'm good guys dw. Love y'all."
Update on Troy/Zarbruh! I just hope he's fine, we love you sm bb, stay strong! :( (Not gonna post the actual video because it's on his spam and tiktok has everyone's usernames at the edges of the video and at the end of it) pic.twitter.com/vHmYeGnNKR— Tas 💓|| MOTS: 7 😳|| Spidey 3 soon 🕷️ (@tommysmoonchild) April 20, 2020
While the account name the comment was posted to has been hidden, the user also shared a photo from the video, in which Troy writes "It's over a year old. Idc."
It's unclear if, in his comment, he's referring to the photos that were leaked, but if he is, that means they were taken while Troy was still a minor, and whoever leaked them could face child pornography charges for sharing them.
